Decorating for the holidays shouldn’t be a massive chore involving stacks of plastic bins that need to be carted to and from the attic every December—and it doesn’t have to involve inordinate amounts of glitter, fake snow, and tinsel. Instead, decorate with timeless pieces that fit in with your style, store easily, and last for years. Keep it classy, not tacky!
